Probate And Estate Administration In New York

After your loved one’s death, his or her estate will need to be settled in court, whether or not your loved one had a will. Not only can this process be complicated and potentially contentious, but it also comes at a very emotionally charged time: after the death of a loved one.

If this describes you, we can help. We are the experienced Westchester, New York, probate and estate administration attorneys at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP.

Probate issues? Call a wills, trusts and estate attorney at: 914-269-2367.

From Filing The Will To Distributing The Assets, We Can Help

We have decades of experience guiding our clients through the probate process. The steps include:

  • Filing the last will and testament with the Surrogate’s Court
  • Valuing estate assets
  • Notifying beneficiaries under the last will
  • Distributing assets
  • Working with your accountant regarding the preparation and filing of estate tax returns

If your loved one did not have a will, the experienced lawyers at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, can help your family as well. In these cases, we petition Surrogate’s Court for letters of administration on behalf of the family. That step provides the authority to collect assets and distribute them in adherence with the New York state laws of “intestacy” (not having a will).
